Another survey vessel

Slightly smaller than the survey ship JAMES COOK seen at Fairlie yesterday (which sailed today, incidentally) is the Greenock-based survey vessel owned by the Scottish Environmental Protection Agency (SEPA). Named SIR JOHN MURRAY after an eminent 19th century marine biologist, this little ship was built at Millers boatyard at St Monans in Fife in 2004.
